Diabetes - 2 Ways It Impacts Male Sexual Health

Diabetes - 2 Ways It Impacts Male Sexual Health

Diabetes is often considered as deadly as cancer. It is a disease that requires lifestyle changes and diet modifications. It is also a disease that affects almost all body systems. Whether you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, it will do you a world of good to understand the effects of diabetes. Neurovascular damage is one of the most common effects, this means that diabetes will affect the nerves and blood supply of the body.

While Type 1 diabetes makes its presence felt much earlier and is hereditary quite often, Type 2 appears later in life with age and cumulative stress. The effects of diabetes are related to the duration of the disease. Therefore, people with Type 1 diabetes are more likely to have the symptoms early on and need to learn to manage them. Type 2 makes its appearance later, but needs good monitoring for the effects to not surface or prolong the severity of symptoms.

As we all know, all body systems are affected by diabetes, sexual health is no exception. Diabetes decreases blood supply and impacts the nerves in the genitals, thus causing a series of issues right from reduced libido and erectile dysfunction in males to vaginal dryness and painful coitus (perunia) in females.

Listed below are issues diabetic men and women face in terms of sexual health:

In Men:

1. Diabetes reduces testosterone levels, which is directly reflected in reduced libido. Altered nerve function does not provide proper signals to the penis and there is also reduced blood flow to the organ. Both these can diminish the chances of a good erection. Studies have shown that among men who have had diabetes for 10 years, about 50% have experienced erectile dysfunction.

2. The affected nerve function also leads to difficulties in reaching a climax. Diabetes in men can additionally cause Peyronie's disease, which leads to a curved penis, and this leads to painful and difficult erections and coitus.

In Women:

1. It leads to reduced sexual desire due to testosterone levels. Vaginal dryness is very common in females with diabetes, and therefore, there is a definite decline in the urge.

2. The above-mentioned neurovascular damage also prevents women from reaching a good climax, as the nerve supply is affected.

3. Diabetes also increases the predisposition to urinary tract infections, which can lead to painful sexual experience due to additional vaginal dryness and itching.

Finally, as much as it may sound as a cause for concern, it is not. People with diabetes know that making small lifestyle changes can go a long way in terms of onset of symptoms, their severity, and the leading of a normal life. Modifications in diet and lifestyle to include healthy eating, reduced stress, and exercising are very useful. It is also very important to talk to your doctor about how your sexual health has changed with diabetes. It is a sensitive and private topic, but if you are concerned about it, then do not hesitate to seek help.

Report is suggestive of hypothyroidism means your thyroid gland is not producing sufficient thyroid hormone. It is treated with thyroid hormone. If you are pregnant consult a Physician/Endocrinologist immediately because thyroid hormone is essential for normal physical and mental development of foetus.

Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Fasting glucose of 230 mg is very high, which clearly indicates that you have developed diabetes. Please check your after food glucose and HbA1c% and come back. If one has diabetes and it is not in check, there is a possibility of blood glucose level going up following exercise as more glucose is pushed in blood to meet extra demand by muscles. Since there is a lack of insulin, levels remain high. If you are already a diabetic person, then with treatment you should be able to maintain fasting glucose < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Otherwise, there can be serious long term consequences of that condition. Thanks.

Hi, lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. You can take eggs regularly even the whole egg is better than just the white part. Because the whole egg gives almost 7 to g of protein, Unless you have high lipids, there is no reason to leave egg yolk. But most important is to achieve a strict blood glucose control. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. For a person with hypothyroidism following precautions are necessary. 1) TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, that will help in having a good healthy life. 2) Regular exercise for at least 1 hour a day is necessary. 3) Avoid soy beans, soy containing food products. 4) Always use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. 5) Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, and foods made out of maida. 6) Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Curd rice is quite fine, but junk foods are bad. Her weight is less if her height is as mentioned 5 feet and 2 inches. It should be closer to 57 kgs. Thanks.

Facts And Myths About Diabetes

Facts And Myths About Diabetes

Is jaggery good for Diabetic patient, Facts & Myths About Diabetes Be Aware, Be Healthy!

MYTH-Jaggery is better or safe in diabetes :

FACT-Jaggery and sugar both are essentially same. Both contain sucrose, as they are prepared from sugar cane juice. Hence eating either of these will increase blood glucose considerably. In jaggery there are some vitamins and a few antioxidants. But both are bad for a diabetic person.
 

MYTH- Eating Sugar or Sweets causes Diabetes :

FACT -It is incorrect to say that eating sweets and / or sugar causes diabetes. Basically excess food intake will lead to excess production of glucose. That puts excess load on insulin producing cells in pancreas due glucotoxicity. Also due to central obesity  the fat around internal organs causes lipotoxicity affecting the beta cells. Therefore, excess food intake in general and weight gain  are the reasons for diabetes.


MYTH- Rice should not be eaten in diabetes :

FACT- Not really true. Because in south India this is the major or at times only main food. Rice has a high glycemic index so gets converted to glucose rapidly. So polished rice is not good. Brown rice is better. Quantity should be regulated. All other cereals  also are converted  glucose after digestion. 

MYTH- Diabetes is curable :

FACT-Diabetes is  mainly due deficiency of Insulin (hormone produced by Beta cells of pancreas), plus resistance to action of insulin, overweightor obesity  and inactivity. Therefore, to treat diabetes we need drugs that initiate insulin secretion, reduce insulin resistance. In some cases  insulin itself. Plus dietary control and regular exercise to maintain normal weight or reduce excess weight. Hence it can only be effectively controlled. Cure is not possible

MYTH-Allopathic Medications Damage Kidneys, so go for either Ayurvedic or Homeopathic Drugs :

FACT-In fact diabetes itself affects kidney, particularly the filtering membrane of glomerulurous  (a filtering unit in the kidney).   Even when diabetes fairly well controlled, kidney does get affected. The drugs used to treat diabetes  help in overcoming kidney damage. Therefore it is wrong to think that modern drugs cause kidney damage.

MYTH-Sugar intake is essential for body :

FACT- Some people keep asking that eating sugar is very necessary for getting energy for the body tissues. This is not at all true.  Because all the cereals like rice, jowar, wheat, ragi, bajra and other millets, contain starch as the main ingredient. Hence intake of each of these foods  provides glucose after digestion. So there is no separate need for taking sugar.

Few things to be remembered and practiced are :

  • Always use whole grain flour, as it contains a good amount of biber content for making chapati or roti.
  • Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads with every meal.
  • Consider fruits and green leafy vegetables as part of regular snacks
  • Take small meals on more number of occasion to avoid glucose surge.
  • Avoid Maida and foods made from it. It is probably worst kind of food that one can consume.
  • Form healthy food habits.
